Sierra Madre Villa station is a light rail station on the L Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located in the median of Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway), at Sierra Madre Villa Avenue, after which the station is named, in Pasadena, California. The light rail station opened on July 26, 2003, as the northern terminus of the original Gold Line, then known as the "Pasadena Metro Blue Line" project. This station and all the other original and Foothill Extension stations will be part of the A Line upon completion of the Regional Connector project in 2022.
The station has a 965 space, five-floor parking garage, accessed from Sierra Madre Villa Avenue and North Halstead Street. The first floor of the parking garage has a multi-bay bus plaza, and the fourth floor has the train platform access, with faregates, ticket vending machines and a pedestrian bridge, which passes over the westbound lanes of the Foothill Freeway.
Sierra Madre Villa was the L Line's northern terminus from 2003 until 2016. Service on the first phase of the Gold Line Foothill Extension began on March 5, 2016, which extended the line to APU/Citrus College station.
The station structure was designed by artist Tony Gleaton and features large photo portraits suspended above the platform access stairways. The adjacent 965-space parking structure was designed by artist Beth Thielen, using a theme of "nature and movement". The station, under naming schemes, is named for Sierra Madre Villa Avenue rather than the nearby city of Sierra Madre, although the major thoroughfare leads to Sierra Madre.
